How Is a Facet Joint Injection Performed at OrthoNeuro?
At OrthoNeuro, facet joint injections are performed on an outpatient basis and take only minutes. We also use real-time X-Ray (fluoroscopy) to ensure precise placement of the needle and the medication to ensure the correct spinal joint.
General anesthesia is not needed during this procedure and your OrthoNeuro specialist will administer mild sedation and a local anesthetic before your injection.
Little to no discomfort is experienced during or after the procedure and you are allowed to return home shortly after. Results may last for many months and repeat injections may be performed to maintain results.
